March 13

We are different. We do not fear as the world fears. We do not worry because we have the peace given to us by Jesus. During a plague that broke out in the camp of the Israelites, Moses instructed Aaron to take a censer full of fire, and incense, and go among the people to stop the plague. Aaron stood between the dead and the people who were still alive; his offering was accepted by God, and the plague stopped. Isn’t this our job as believers, to stand between the people and God, and make and offering before the Lord, as his royal priesthood? We do not have to offer a censer full of fire and incense, because Jesus is a pleasing aroma to the Father, and his one time offering has covered all of our iniquities, but we must pray to him, that he intercedes on our behalf, for the people who are suffering. If we freak out like everyone else, aren’t we showing the world our lack of faith in God? For the sake of those watching you, especially those of you who are worriers, put on the full armor of God, and become the warrior that God intended you to be, and offer prayer for those who may be affected by sickness. Stand in the gap!!

So Aaron took it as Moses said and ran into the midst of the assembly. And behold, the plague had already begun among the people. And he put on the incense and made atonement for the people. And he stood between the dead and the living, and the plague was stopped. Numbers 16:47-48
